A to Z Challenge: The Letter F - Fae the Tua De

My A to Z Challenge contains names, places and things that are found in a book called The Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning. If you haven't read these books, which I recommend, please be aware there will be spoilers.

F is for Fae

Art by Mathia Arkoniel: The Seelie & Unseelie

Fae is also known as the Tuatha De Danann or Tuatha De (Tua day dhanna or Tua DAY). An advanced race of otherworldly creatures that possess enormous powers of magic and illusion. After war destroyed their world, they colonized Earth, settling on the shores of Ireland in a cloud of fog and light. Originally the Fae were untied, and there was only the Seelie, but the Seelie King left the queen and created his court when she refused to use the Song of Making to grant his concubine immortality. He became the Unseelie King and established a dark, mirror image court of Fae castes. While the Seelie are golden, shining, and beautiful, the Unseelie, except for royalty, is dark-haired and dark-skinned, misshapen, hideous abominations with sadistic, insatiable desires. Bothe Seelie and Unseelie have four royal houses of princes and princesses who are sexually addictive and highly lethal to humans.

I really need to reread these books. So many of these things sound hazy or unfamiliar! Melanie's Stories
